I did not realize that the remote control was not as universal as the package indicated. It seems that I have to install/integrate a receiving unit into the fan itself.
Does anyone have tips on performing this?
I'm not sure of the fan model #, since it was already in place when I purchased the home. It is however a drop down, Hampton Bay fan, with variable speed & lighting. The new remote control is model # 838 956, by Hampton Bay.
